Older Call of Duty Games Reach Xbox Best Sellers List After Recent Boom

Expert Verified By

Black Ops 2 Best Selling Xbox Game!

Following a recent update, older Call of Duty games have seen a massive surge on Xbox consoles. This includes games like Treyarch’s Black Ops 2, which has seen over 10K concurrent players over the last few days.

However, this resurgence is not limited to one or two games. Nearly every classic title from the franchise has seen thousands of new and returning players. Following this excitement, various older Call of Duty games have become the best-selling games on Xbox.

Why it matters: This resurgence has been possible thanks to Microsoft’s backward compatibility program for modern Xbox consoles. Many older fans of the franchise also consider these games the best of the entire franchise.

The Call of Duty franchise occupies the top 5 spots on the best-sellers list. Treyarch’s iconic Black Ops 2 is currently the best-selling game on the platform, with last year’s Modern Warfare 2 coming in the fifth position.

It should be noted that the franchise is also on sale. The current resurgence and the lower prices for the franchise have likely motivated players to return to these classic FPS titles.

However, players should keep in mind that hacking is still an issue in these games. Players are likely to run into modders using aimbots or various other methods to gain an unfair advantage over everyone else.

This may also lead to potential security concerns for users playing these games, so it would be best to practice some caution.

While the exact reason for the recent updates to these games remains unknown, Microsoft is expected to be involved in this decision.

The gaming giant is getting ready to merge with Activision Blizzard, which would mean that the entire Call of Duty IP will be available on Game Pass in the near future. As such, Microsoft likely wants these games to work as intended.
